Pet Peeve Essay
Joel Carlos

If i had to say that i have a pet peeve, or something that i

feel gets really on my nurves it would have to be people that use

Cell phones with total disreguard for the people around them that are

forced to listen to their one sided conversations against their will. Dont

get me wrong, i think the advances in cell phone technology are great,

the ability to wirelessly talk to anyone in the world on demand without

the use of wires is a very incredable achievement, but it does have its

minor negative aspacts that just seem to bug me and get on my nurves.

Throughout the centuries people have searched with viable ways

of communicating with others at great distances. Some methods like using

carrier birds or smoke signals, proved inaccurate and too slow to deliver

improtant information. It wasent until the invention of the telegraph that the real

potential for person to person communication was realized. After years and

years of study and improvement, people seem to have perfected the modern

phone but it seems that we as a culture havent perfected the etiquette that

should be used in conjuction with these advances.

To me, i feel that many cellphone users are unaware of just how discourteous

they are being. Wether it be at a book store, library , public bus, train, theatres, wedding,

or funeral, there are just some places where their are other people who dont care what

your conversation is all about, but people still continue to think that what they need to be

talking on the phone about is more important then anything that is going on around them.

Its not only strangers that i see using cellphones at inapproprate times, its friends

and family as well. It always seems that when i have to deal with someone i know that

we are continuously being interrupted by an obnoxous ringtone or an incomming text

messege that takes nine times longer to reply to then it took to read the original messege,

thus making it take that much longer to continue what we were doing. Personally i think

Text messeges are one of the stupedest forms of modern communication in use today.

I just dont seem to understand how taking 30 mins to type out a five word messege with

your thumbs can be seen as a viable method to communicate with another person

when the device you are using to text with is also capable of doing all of that within seconds

if the person would just call the other and get it over with.
